Volunteer led webinars/virtual meetings

Check out our online sessions on a range of topics hosted by our branches and groups

Our volunteer-led branches and groups regularly run virtual speaker meetings and webinars on a range of OSH topics and industry specific issues.

What's a webinar?

Our webinars are focused on providing technical information to larger audiences where you can hear from speakers on a range of relevant subject matter.

No audio rights are available to attendees in these sessions, but you can get involved and put questions to speakers/panellists via the Q&A function.

What's a Zoom meeting?

Our Zoom meetings are smaller sessions which provide an interactive platform for you to hear from speakers on specific content, but also get involved in robust discussions and network with other OSH professionals joining the sessions.
